Treat Yo’ Self: 7 Beauty Splurges To Make This Week
Includes makeup that will stay all day (read: fashion week ready) and skincare goodies that will create the perfect canvas for all of it.| March 15, 2017
Fashion week helps you realise two main things: that you should eat whenever you can and that having makeup that lasts all day is crucial. When your already tiny AF bag is stuffed with show invites, phones and a camera, your touch-up tools have to be kept at the bare minimum. When your makeup is the sort that won’t budge after six shows and a dinner, that’s half the battle won.
Of course, you can’t ignore your skin as well, what with all the product on your face. Here’s where the masks, moisturisers and serums that help to keep your skin taut, hydrated and smooth come in. Fuss-free options are even better. If you’re on the same page as we are, below are the beauty splurges that we think you should make this week.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing & Perfecting Mask
We love a two-in-one product that delivers – brightens, soothes, hydrates – while still being gentle on sensitive skin.
Violet Voss Holy Grail Eyeshadow Palette
Long-lasting with so many pretty shades in one place – Wine n Dine is our personal favourite – and finally available after months of being OOS.
Hourglass Opaque Liquid Lipstick
When this lippie persisted on our pal Tina Leung’s lips even after a greasy Korean dinner, we knew it was a keeper.
Starskin Hydrating Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Face Mask
If a sheet mask gives instant hydration, plumping and hydration after ten minutes, we’re sold. Plus, the effects from this one stays on through the night and into the morning after.
Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er Eyeliner
One of the best and sturdiest liquid eyeliners on the market, that we can promise you. Its super thin and flexible tip means easy manoeuvring and drawing of the thinnest lines.
Jeffree Star Skin Frost Highlighter
Jeffree Star loves his highlighters, so you can be damn sure that these will bring out the cheekbones and nose bridge you never knew you had. Doubles as eyeshadow, too.
Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules
We’ve established that serum capsules are far more than just gimmicks. Pop one of these on your skin for a boost of collagen and moisture. Glowing skin guaranteed.
